Poland to Lend USD 280 Mln to Vietnam ?


As part of an aid package, Poland will lend $280 million to Vietnam, which will than invest some of this money into Gdansk Shipyard.

Arkadiusz Aszyk, member of the board at Gdańsk Shipyard, said: “We are in the midst of talks about a collaboration on a technological project with Vietnam for the construction of four sea-rescue ships. By May or June, we should be ready to sign agreements.

According to Warsaw Business Journal, this could be the first contract signed in the framework of an aid-based line of credit. Before, the Polish companies could not reach an agreement with the Vietnamese companies thus the credit lay dormant for many years.

Stocznia Gdańsk is a large Polish shipyard, located in the city of Gdańsk. It has delivered more than 1000 seagoing ships to owners all over the world. In recent years, the top deliveries have been container ships, reefers, bulk carriers and passenger ro-ro ferries. Most ships are designed in their own design office. Design and construction of ships has remained the main activity of the yard. Work for the offshore industry began in the 21st century.
